    The tree is up, pressies are wrapped & l've written almost all of the Christmas cards.

    Wearing Ambre Passion this evening. This has become a staple for me on these winter evenings.

    Hi, everyone!

    Congratulations, Teardrop!
    Not in synch, I am wearing Tonka Imperiale, trying to get warm.
    I am also wearing three pullovers and a blanket!
    My house is so cold today...
    It is nice to read all your preparations for the holidays. I am quite lazy myself;
    I am waiting for my daughters to return from abroad to put up our tree.
    And I must confess that my husband will do most of the cooking for the holidays.
    At least I had my hair cut this afternoon, a task I've postponed many times before.



    Have a lovely Friday evening!

    Juliette Has A Gun, Another Oud

    Oh boy, laboratory franken-oud and Norlimbanol. And if that’s not synthetic enough we’ve got Ambroxan to boot. Yep, it’s a chem-soup alright.

    But here’s the thing: I can’t stop enjoying this. Bloody hell, I’m a moth to a flame with that (very fake) raspberry note swinging steadily through the top and heart, and yet somehow even into the dry down. I tend to gravitate towards this type of cottony, warm musk. Raspberry woody oudy shake. Office appropriate.

    It appears to be love it or hate it for everyone else. There’s really no critical in-between with this one. I have other real oud potions that I love and yet here I am . . . ?? Some things needn’t make sense. I’m embarrassed to say I enjoy this one. I know, I should be a wee bit ashamed. Whateva!

    I like it. Fight me.

    Thanks, ZC! . . . I really appreciate that.

    I realize I just lost my oud cred for a while. Hall passes taken away. Can’t say I blame them. And here I was slowly trying to make some inroads into Oudlandia Respectika in 2019 and 2020.

    Perhaps we could all admit that as we move deeper into this hobby, and as much as we deign more dignified scent landscapes for ourselves, there will always be those persistent pleasures that fall outside what we believed were our evolved algorithms.

    Ho hum.

    o sync with New Haarlem.

    I'd like to also share some good news. My daughter, whom several of you long timers know, has just passed her NCLEX-RN exam. She's officially a registered nurse now & can go job hunting.

    Small decisions, made consistently, have huge impacts. Think about what you do, be mindful of the results. Accept responsibility for your choices & do not blame others for your behavior. I speak for myself.

    Hello all,

    I wore Guerlain Heritage on this rainy day up in Los Angeles. It felt warm and cozy.

    Have a good day.

    I skipped the sync today--feeling a bit tired and pressured. Mr. Cat will spare me his Saturday night crowd and come to my house tomorrow night. The very first dinner at Shy's. I wonder what he's going to cook.

    Nah, just joking. I know I have to do something. He might as well see the real me, hey? Meatloaf it is.
